I swear there were a couple nights this month where I almost wore flannel PJs to bed, so I won’t say that Summer has fully arrived here, especially since it won’t stop raining. Here’s what I got up to in this pre-Summer state: Nicole came over for dinner and I made everything out of Barefoot […]

Here’s what was happening on Planet Byn this month: At this point, I’m basically 85% vegetarian, so I was excited when my friend Alexis suggested Boon Burger in Burlington for lunch. This place is entirely vegan and has not one but FOUR different types of burgers (i.e. mushroom based, chickpea based, etc.) which is pretty […]

Easter Treats

This month kicked off with a super fun and cute baking project! I made the treats for my friend Kristine’s niece’s 1st Birthday party. Her sister requested four dozen vanilla cupcakes (I used the recipe from Joy the Baker’s first cookbook) with vanilla icing (I used My Favourite Buttercream) and I ordered the Flamingo sprinkle […]

St. Patrick

This was a pretty low-key month for me, especially since we had super cold wintery-weather, and my hibernation mode was still in effect. Here’s what was going on in the kitchen: It was my friend Jen’s birthday and I made these Black Bottom Cupcakes for her little celebration. They’re chocolate cupcakes with chocolate chip cheesecake centres. […]

Valentines

February is my most dreaded dreary month, and this year I started it with NOROVIRUS, so it could only get better from there: Jenny, Heather and I trekked up to Richmond Hill to see Molly Yeh do a food demo and talk about her new book Molly on the Range. I’ve followed Molly’s blog over […]

I really tried this to cook at home in January and bring my lunch to work every day, which turns out is easy on your bank account but SUPER BORING. Instead I had friends over a couple times and tried out a bunch of new recipes. Here’s a recap: January always kicks off with a […]

December was busy as usual this year: baking cookies, going to work parties, and bringing cardboard boxes to the recycling room because I did 95% of my Christmas shopping online. Here’s the foodie fun I fit in around all that: December was made so much more joyful for me because of a SQUISH Advent Calendar I […]

November is usually a quiet month around here, where I can re-charge and get set for the holidays, and this year was no different, except I was also sick for most of the month, which sucked. Here’s what else was going on: My Mom took me for a belated birthday brunch to The Crepe Kitchen […]
